If Man United could somehow find a way to mix Lindelof and Bailly together, then they would probably find their perfect defensive partner for Maguire.
Bailly is fast and aggressive, but that can cost him if caught out of position, while Lindelof is positionally good and cool on the ball, but can be overly shy when facing a center-forward battering ram and can carry even more. problems when you try to overcompensate.
Lindelof took a lot of stick for his part in West Brom’s goal at the weekend and is a perfectly competent defender, but he’s not the caliber of player who would play a starting role in a title-winning team.
That’s the level Man United should aspire to, and a report from The express has indicated that they could try to solve their problems by signing Fiorentina central Nikola Milenkovic.
The Serbian international has been impressive all season and is known for his aggression and bravery on defense, while also being solid on the ball and positionally, so he could be the man to shore up the baseline.

He’s not insanely fast, so there might be a fear that he and Maguire will easily expose themselves against the faster forwards, but it still looks like he would be a useful addition.
He is still only 23 years old, but it also appears that his contract ends in the summer of 2022 and he has no plans to renew it, so Fiorentina will be forced to charge this summer and a price of £ 30 million has been touted.
It will be easy to make comparisons with Nemanja Vidic for her physical style and aggressiveness in the air, while she still has plenty of time to develop and improve.
The report suggests that Man City is also interested, although they gave Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias a lot of money last summer, so a move to Old Trafford seems like a real possibility.
